Carmarthenshire - The Cycling Hub of Wales

The Route

The 2018 OVO Energy Tour of Britain will begin in South Wales for the first time as Carmarthenshire and Newport host the opening stage of Britain’s national Tour on Sunday 2 September. It will mark the first time that the race has visited Carmarthenshire with the county set to welcome 120 of the world’s top professional cyclists for the start of Britain’s biggest professional cycle race. The 175 kilometres that separate the start in Pembrey Country Park and the finish are anything but flat. Riders will pass through Kidwelly, Carmarthen, Llandeilo and Llandovery as it continues into the Brecon Beacons through to its stage finish in Newport city centre.
